About

>

Lois Weaver is one of the true pioneers in feminist and lesbian performance. The Only Way Home Is Through the Show explores her collaborative work with Split Britches and Spiderwoman as well as her solo projects, performance interventions, and work as a facilitator, teacher, and as Tammy WhyNot.

It tells her story through hundreds of professional and personal photos and an extraordinary range of texts, from performance writing to critical commentary – all embellished with performance ephemera, personal memoir, and hand-written notes on methodologies.

Featuring a wealth of material that has never previously been published, the book includes contributions from many of Weaver’s key collaborators, old and new, and many of the most important feminist writers, photographers, and performance makers of the last forty years.

The Only Way Home Is Through the Show is a guided tour of Lois Weaver’s aesthetics, principles, inspirations, innovations, and desires.
